Hi, thank you for your question. Do you know if the property is registered with the land registry? If not you can check here and let me know if you can access the title deed: https://www.gov.uk/search-property-information-land-registry
Are you planning to sell the property or keep it?
Thanks for confirming. In that case to ensure that your name is ***** ***** deeds you will need to register the land, it appears that the property is unregistered, as a first registration using form FR1. Given the potential complexities with the first registration and to ensure that it is done correctly I would suggest that you seek a local conveyancer or residential property solicitor.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
Just to add to the above.
If you have mot already done so you will need to arrange for the Executor (which may of course be you) to obtain Probate of the Will before you can take any action
If this has already been done the Executor will need to sign an AS1 transferring the property into your name before the FR1 can be filed with the Land Registry.
